WattStopper Launches Streamlined Website For Improved Access To A Wealth Of Online Tools And Resources
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – WattStopper has produced an enhanced website to streamline the user experience, including quicker access to valuable resources and improved search capabilities. Visitors will feel at home on the new site, which incorporates aspects of the previous award-winning design, but will appreciate simplified navigation with the most visited pages organized into fewer main areas. Additional improvements include more paths to quickly access technical content from CAD drawings and BIM objects to cut sheets, specifications and installation instructions. The new site also improves searches of resources including documents and a growing library of videos. WattStopper’s popular interactive design tools and educational content are also linked to more pages than ever before.
Since its initial launch more than 15 years ago, wattstopper.com has ranked consistently high in user opinion polls, due to the enormous depth of technical content available on the site. In 2008 tED Magazine honored the site with its “Best of the Best” award. More recently the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Committee accepted WattStopper’s online Energy Saving Calculators to its prestigious 2010 IES Progress Report. The free calculators for lighting energy and plug loads help users identify which lighting and control strategies best match their energy savings goals for retrofit or new construction projects, and help them maximize return on investment (ROI).
Recently, WattStopper has introduced many of its educational resources as interactive online tools. Design tools including Control Six and DLM Best Practice Solutions allow users to input project criteria and download resulting data on product recommendations complete with wiring diagrams, bills of materials and more. WattStopper’s Training Center now includes an eCampus online learning center. These powerful new tools complement a complete library of digital product documentation, providing a single online destination designed to help visitors learn about the latest energy codes and select and implement the best energy efficient controls.
